We begin at his end. In the moments before the climactic
battle of his life, Macbeth is tortured with guilt and paranoia. Is he mad,
evil or just who he thinks he is………the rightful King of Scotland? Join us as we
place Macbeth under the microscope.
Offering an intense insight into Macbeth’s thoughts in the
moments before his death through the use of live-video feed screened on stage,
Macbeth will be under the spotlight as we explore the consequences of his
desire for power and the effect of his betrayal of those closest to him.
Using only the original text we have reordered scenes and key
moments in Macbeth’s descent into madness as his grasp on power and reality
spiral out of control, to create a new and original take on this classic text.
In the year of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, this adaptation
will illustrate how relevant his work remains to a contemporary audience.
